Week 42 April 12, 2016

Whats good friends and fam!

Sorry I'm on a day late!

Well transfer calls came and.......... Looks like I'll be spending a
3rd out here in Bremerhaven! Rogers is staying as well and it will be
a 7 week transfer. That's a long time but I'm excited. Our entire
district stayed the same except of course Elder Peterson and it was
way way hard to see him go. But all is well because I will be seeing
him in just a short year:) My boy Gallacher is gone too. So dang sad,
it's honestly unreal. I'm officially one of the older ones on the
mish... And in a couple more transfers I will be the oldest. Crazy
CALLED IT FROM THE BEGINNING! I know he is gonna hook me up with all
the good benefits:)))

Anyways, not much this last week. Met with a few people and played some
soccer in Oldenburg again. The transfer calls were changed to Sunday
night instead of the usual Saturday night/ Monday morning which I have
no clue why and I can't think about it too much because I get mad. We
can't say goodbye to our ward because we don't know who or if we are
going... And it makes it hard to plan things because if someone goes
that changes your entire schedule. But what can you dooooo?? ANYWAYS...

Today was kinda crazy because of multiple things that I don't have the
the energy to write but we got to play laser tag which was way fun.
Killed it the first round and then the second round this 14 year old
kid with a pierced ear walks in and talks about how he's the best
laser tag player in Germany... Supposedly he was in the Guiness Book
of world records. He was good but he wasn't that good. Your boi stuck
close. Jokes on him actually because he brought HIS OWN laser tag vest
and gun. I didn't even know you could do that.. Who does that?
Honestly, who is that serious about laser tag? He brought his own vest
and gun....that is just unreal...

Auf jeden fall we have lots of good goals this next transfer and were
planning on seeing some big miracles out here. I love you guys and
pray for you everyday!

Have a good week!

Week 41 April 4th, 2016

Hey everyone!

Well this week was... Interesting... But conference was great as always. Loved it all!!

Well let's get to it!

Monday started off with a BANG. Elder Peterson and Matis spent the night because we were gonna do an exchange the next morning. Now, here is where things get crazy. I normally let Elder Rogers cut my hair, and he does a good job, but Peterson has been bragging ALL WEEK about how many good hair cuts he has given. So I said what the heck why not.. So I am sitting patiently throughout the haircut and we are near the end. The next thing I know is: "Oh my gosh!!!" I thought it was a big joke at first, however after seeing the facial expressions of Elder Rogers and Elder Matis, I knew it was far from a joke. I hopped off my stool and sprinted as fast as I could to the closest mirror and I saw it.... ONE. HUGE. SHAVED. LINE. RIGHT DOWN THE SIDE OF MY HEAD. I was honestly speechless... If it weren't for Elder Petersons hysterical laugh, I would be outraged. But when you hear it, it just makes your day 100x better gosh dangit. And it's too short to cut all the way around still. So I have been wearing a hat all week and taking lots of fish oil pills. Maybe this is a blessing in disguise because I heard those pills are mega healthy.

ANYWAYS! Tuesday we went up to Oldenburg and played indoor soccer. I miss soccer so much. And being in shape because I was absolutely dying. 

Wednesday we had our last district meeting of the transfer because next week we have zone training meeting. Crazy how fast these last 6 weeks have gone by! Hopefully our district won't change too much..

The rest of the week we tried to get the work rolling but its tough. Not a lot happening right now so we really need to figure something out. I am grateful for conference this week, I really needed it. I felt like so many of the talks were directed for me specifically and how I myself can be better for now and for the future, as well as helping these members and people of Germany as best I can. I feel like sometimes these people just simply aren't doing the simple things that can make big differences in their lives. Huge example, coming to church. COME. TO. CHURCH. This is where Elder Miller is learning patience. Regardless, I love these stingy, cranky people, and just like Elder Mervyn B. Arnold said, I will never give up on any of them, no matter what:)
